Hello All, I am running an EnergyPlus measure in OpenStudio. My model runs in OpenStudio. However, when I export my file as idf file, the idf file does not include the EnergyPlus measure. How can I export my OpenStudio file as idf file which include the EnergyPlus measure? Any help would be appreciated.

As @Avi pointed out, the export IDF feature doesn't run an OpenStudio or EnergyPlus measure that you might have in the workflow, but he provides reasonable workaround. If this is something you need to do a lot or to a bunch of files, you can automate it with the command line interface

After you run your model in OpenStudio go to the project folder then get into the run subfolder where you can find the in.idf file. That is the file you need.
